    Here is an add-on for creating robot process paths on surfaces. Add-on requires access to topology so Premium level product is needed.

    Add-on has a bunch of parameters that affect the path generation. Check out attached pdf for details. Easiest way to see parameters’ effect is to try them out. There is a preview of the path that is updated whenever parameters are changed. So launch the add-on, select a surface, tune the parameters and generate the path or hit cancel to delete preview path.

    Hi,

    There is no tutorial for this unfortunately. But here’s a bullet point process for using the add-on:

    • Unzip the add-on under My Commands folder.
    • Launch VC and some robot cell.
    • Select the robot, go to program tab.
    • Click “Path On Face” button on program panel.
    • Click “Select Surface” button and click some surface on the 3D scene. Preview of the path should be displayed.
    • Tune the parameters. Hitting Enter after changing some value should update the preview path. There’s a frame at the start of the path that displays the tool frame orientation.
    • Click Generate to create a path.
